This IPA is a slightly hazed amber. The off-white head is an unusual combination of fluffy and dense. It reaches a solid finger of height. Moderate retention leads to the eventuality of a strong island that leaves a ring of lace at the top of the glass and thick spotting below.
The aromas show a sort of C-hops profile, while malts add caramel sweetness and biscuit without overcoming the hops.
In the flavore it's somewhat stemmier and pithier with a chalky, slightly aspirin-like dryness along with honey-drizzled biscuit and caramel. Sweetness is set aside in the middle, where a hint of herbal leaf, dried grapefruit peel, and a ghost of mint come out.
The feel gives a solid mix of crisp and smooth with a drier middle to finish, while the end thins out very slightly.
Don't be fooled; even big breweries can make decent stuff whether craft beer hipsters like it or not. True, it rarely overwhelms, but this, at least, is solid.

330ml bottle, nice artwork, and a new (to me) hop pun to contemplate. Another offering originally brought to Alberta in an exclusive to some store in Northwest Calgary - a few of them are now filtering out elsewhere.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, frothy, and loosely bubbly eggshell white head, which leaves some decent layered bonsai tree lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of wanly crackery pale and caramel malt, dry dish soap, hints of pithy corn meal, and a soft metallic flintiness. The taste is more of the same, that soapy flintiness (can't seem to find other ways to describe it) quite strong, with perhaps a bit of muted pine needle, ethereal denatured citrus, white saltine crackers, corn nuts, and a further wee alcohol astringency.

The carbonation is fairly tightly held, almost pulling on my side palate, the body medium-light in weight, and way too edgy to be deemed anywhere near smooth. It finishes rather dry, that same flintiness consistent, at the very least.

Meh - I suppose I should be happy that there aren't any typical off-flavours here, but alas, I am not. That stony, metallic, and yes, flinty essence masquerading as hops is nothing to be proud of, in fact as it warms, the underlying standard citrus and pine essences come off more than a bit musty. Not worth the costly sixers they come in around here - barely worth the single, I gotta say.

Day of the Dead series from Cerveceria Mexicana in Tecate. Clear light copper from a twist off 330 ml. bottle and poured into a pint glass. Rich cap of foam and good lace.

Light spicy hop aroma and notable malt backbone. Bit out of balance and muddled with malt notes. Flavor is similar and just an upped version of thier pale ale from my guess. Bitterness is a bit lacking on the finish and quoted at 50 IBU's on website.

Not unlike a 21st Ammendment or many an other Northwest or mass produced house label IPA's in my experience. Yet better executed in a sense though maxed out as for grain bill resources. Hops a bit stale and a bit much on the crystal malt don't do an IPA any justice for me.

DOA IPA has a thin, off-white head, a hazy, orange-gold, bubbly appearance, and some good lacing left behind, which is displayed in sheets more than rings. Aroma is subdued, but one does get a little bit of sweet bread. Taste is strongly piney bitter, but the bitterness is not harsh or unpleasant. Other flavors are grapefruit, white bread, and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and DOA IPA finishes puckering, dry, tart, bitter, and surprisingly drinkable. Although nothing in this really differentiates it from other West Coast style IPAs it is good and worth checking out.
